No bold typewriter font in Latin Modern why
I lose dozens of minutes every time I want to put in a presentation
@otini Why limit yourself to Computer Modern? You have all of OTF available to you!
@tfb Well if I have to change the font of my whole presentation, it's not ideal. And it's strange for latex's default font not to have this.
@otini You could probably redo just the typewriter or even just the bold typewriter stuff in Luxi Mono
@tfb Sure, but it takes me 30 minutes to find the right code to type. And it is quite complex for a simple task, hence my ranting
@kmicu I see. But as the author of the article says about underlined hyperlinks, things evolve, or should, don't you think?
By the way that's a beautiful website!
@otini yes, today we aren’t constrained by typewriter’s limitations so we can use modern mono‑spaced typefaces designed for screens, laser printers, or terminals; like Latin Modern Mono (with all OpenType format goodies).
For me typewriter variants are only for emulating past look&feel. In the same way like some folks still use bitmap fonts today (e.g. Terminus).
@otini After further investigation ;) Latin Modern Typewriter exists only in old versions of Latin Modern and recent Latin Modern typeface (available in Nix) has only Latin Modern Mono which is is the successor of Typewriter variant with all modern bells & whistles.
Thank you for inspiring me to search for that info! I love reading all those GUST typography papers 🙃
@kmicu Ooh, that's cool.
Does your last emoji indicates irony? 😂
Upside down face shows that “I could be silly” cuz I like to read “some obscure typography papers”. I really like to read that stuff.
PS Usually I use irony mark ⸮ to indicate irony. Generally I try to not use sarcasm in short text communication cuz that’s too confusing in already confusing communication method. 🤷
PSPS I’m also afraid that sometimes I sound like an asshole when I reply. Sorry for that. Not my intention at all. (◍•ᴗ•◍)
@kmicu Oh, I have come to use the upside down face to signal sarcasm so I wasn't sure.
I love typography papers too! Where do you find them? What is GUST?
No offence taken at all, at any of your messages. 😊
@otini I’ve checked now and see that upside down face can mean sarcasm too (even more often than silliness). Didn’t know that.
GUST is ((Polish) System TeX User Group). It’s responsible for BachoTeX conference, e-foundry† creating e.g. Latin Modern, Tex Gyre typefaces, or TeX ‘Pearls’‡ (aka TeX beauties and oddities).
Some papers are at http://www.gust.org.pl/projects/e-foundry/latin-modern#Readings
@kmicu Thank you very much!
@otini Bold face for the reserved words? Maybe try underline or something?
@amiloradovsky Meh, I think underlining is not legible. But that's ok, I used fontspec’s \setmonofont to change the monospace font to one with bold tt.
@amiloradovsky Wait, in fact, I actually renounced using a monospace font at all. Listings in non-monospace sans serif look ok with `\lstset[columns=flexible]`.
@otini The only place where monospace is really necessary is ASCII art… And in certain styles of source code, where the indentation depends on the width of the expressions. That may actually be a dubious aesthetic, not sure.
@amiloradovsky Mm I've never quite liked expression-depending indentation in my OCaml code, so I might give non-monospace code a try.
@amiloradovsky Damn, Vim doesn't accept proportional fonts.
@amiloradovsky Alas Emacs bindings are too hard on my pinky, I need Vim's modal editing.
@otini Evil can really help Vim users to migrate to the Church. Unfortunately, some behaviours are not conserved exactly as-is between Vim and Emacs + Evil, so I really only do that when using Proof General.
@otini I fully understand that. ☺
@amiloradovsky See my answer to MartinShadok in the other branch
@otini Oh, OK. Of course finding analogues for all the plugins and configuration settings takes more efforts than just changing the keybindings.
